The Washington Times recalls that shameful time in American history:
"Had the United States fought North Vietnam as it had any other enemy in its history, the conflict would have been settled speedily. However, fear of escalation and Chinese intervention caused Johnson to severely limit the use of force against the North. He chose to fight the war on unfavorable terms in the South, which was a long-term recipe for failure; nevertheless, the United States and South Vietnamese armed forces foiled every North Vietnamese attack. The 1968 Tet Offensive, the last-ditch attempt to achieve a communist victory, was a historic military defeat for the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong, which a demoralized U.S. government and skeptical press turned into an American political defeat....
...America's betrayal of South Vietnam has been an inspiration to foreign insurgents and domestic activists and politicians who have sought to replicate it whenever U.S. forces have been deployed abroad. U.S. military might is only as strong as the politicians who stand behind it. The lesson for the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan is that America will prevail with strong will and determined leadership. A disgrace like April 1975 must never happen again."
Yet even today, there remains an obnoxious insistence in revising the historical truth about the undermining of the war effort, and the resulting hell that produced millions of death and unmeasurable misery and suffering for the people of Southeast Asia.
There exists those who insist on writing the outrageous lies about that era in order to promote their modern day agenda of a sissified, emasculated, and properly punished America among the world community. These people are among worst kind of arrogant and obnoxious jerks we suffer from today. Several of those cretins participate in our local blahgosphere from time to time, and have repeated their disproved canards about the Viet Nam era shamelessly.
I will never let these people go unchallenged when they openly spew their ugly and dogmatic propaganda about Viet Nam.
